I was out beveraging yesterday with special guests (more on that in another post), when Ms. Karen let me know via Facebook that my blog had been hacked.
Luckily I have the ability to FTP into my webserver from my iPhone, so I put my blog in maintenance mode so any visitor would at least be greeted with a message of my choice other than “This site has been HACKED”.
When I awoke this morning, I killed a couple of plugins that I think potentially could have allowed the hackers in, then restored my blog from a clean backup. I guess time will tell if those plugins were the door in. If I get hacked again, that is.
Damn script kiddies.
Until next time...

Just doing my duty!
Thank you ever so much!
This is part of a message I got when I logged in to GwG the other day:
erikrubright is briefly unavailable for maintenance.
I thought, I wonder if he’s up on the rack getting a lube job; now I know you were repairing from being hacked. I HATE when that happens–hope you’ve got some good barriers in place.
Oddly enough, I thought I had good barriers in place. 🙁
